Name(s) in local language(s):Lamnitztal (Politzberg), Rangersdorf, Kreuzeckgruppe, Kärnten, Österreich
Locality type:Valley


Pre-alpidic polymetallic sulphide mineralisation. The ore (submarine exhalative type) forms a concordant lens up to 3.8 m thick and about 310 m long.
Abandoned adits in the upper Lamnitz valley.

Pichler (2009) mentiones Bärenbachstollen (alt. of 1750 m), Quarzitwand (alt. of 2130 m), Hohe Nase (alt. of 2035 m), Tresdorfer Wölla (alt. of 1160 m), and Politzberg (alt. of 2030-2217 m).
The occurrence is named "Politzberg" in Wallner & Prochaska (1983) and Cerny & Schroll (1995).

Smelter next Bilitzhütte (alt. 1940 m) built in 1845.
